"Now that we know who they are and what they're about, we want to shout out how wonderful they are from the rooftops! A special type of person has the skills to be a doula. Their job is to enter the most personal of spaces with a mum & dad to be, and make them feel comfortable enough to experience the wonder of childbirth with them. Feeling reassured and 'calm' through the birth is not something first time mum & dad's would usually associate with birth (especially the first one) but that's exactly what we had and we have Bethany to thank for that! "      Cassie

"You were there for one of the proudest and most beautiful moments of my life and I'll never forget that. Thank you so much for helping me and giving me the confidence I needed to achieve my vbac"  Jenny xoxo

"How can we ever thank you for helping us bring this beautiful spirit into the world?! We are so greatful - birthing this bubba was one of my most empowering and proudest experiences"       Lydia

Supporting women to enjoy their pregnancy, connect with their baby and ultimatley look forward to giving birth.  Supporting partners, to ensure they feel safe, are included, effective and calm in the birth space.
